New scarf pattern for men – the Cambourne Scarf
I have just uploaded a brand new scarf pattern, which would be perfect to start knitting now ready for the winter which will be upon us before we know it! The Cambourne Scarf is eye-catching yet sophisticated, and features a contrast-striped edge with a deeply textural pattern for a warm finish.
The scarf is worked is a wonderfully soft 100% merino wool yarn and the pattern includes instructions for three sizes and three different colourways.
For more information about this new pattern, please see my blogpost dated 31 July 2018.

Updates for two bag patterns!
An update for two of my bag patterns!
The first is the BYOB 2.0 - Bring Your Own Bag! shown on the left. This now has a second colourway, the Blueberry colourway, featuring a rich blend of blue, turquoise and white.
The second update is the companion BYOB Market Bag, a long-handled bag which was originally worked alongside a series of tutorial blogposts. I have added crisp new stitch charts and new working diagrams + updated the pattern information and links.
Please click here for more details about these two bags and all the other bag patterns available here. All are available for immediate download so you can get knitting today.
New Blogpost: Summer and Winter
Thurs 12th July 2018
It's Winter-time! Or at least it is if you live in the Southern hemisphere. It might be sweltering here in the North but it's getting chilly in Sydney, Australia.
So I'm starting a new blogpost series called "Summer and Winter", featuring two knitting patterns with something in common but designed for very different climates.
Today's pairing is for two sideways knitted scarves: the Kimpton Scarf, a lovely light-weight lacy summer scarf, and a new pattern for a men's scarf, the Cambourne Scarf.
